Welcome to Miss Cullen’s Reception Class


There are 24 amazing children in this class.

The class is supported by Mrs Marques.

I am very proud of the children for settling in and for the parents being so supportive and encouraging.

In reception we are guided by the EYFS learning goals.


Please use the link below to give you more information on the EYFS goals.


The main areas are:

  1. Personal, Social and Emotional development,
  2. Communication and Language,
  3. Literacy,
  4. Mathematics,
  5. Understanding the World,
  6. Art
  7. Physical development.


The prime areas:

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Communication and Language
  • Physical Development

The specific areas:

  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design

The prime areas are considered to be the basis of successful learning in the other four specific areas.

The prime areas of learning enable children to acquire the key skills to learn effectively throughout their education. 



Start at 9:00am - drop off at main gate

Finish at 3:30pm - collect at main gate


It is very important that your child is in school every day and we advise that you contact the school office if your child is absent for any reason.


At home it would be very useful for the children to practise changing their own clothes, using a knife and fork and writing their name and cutting.


If you would like to speak to me, please wait until all the children have been collected at the end of the day and then I will be able to answer any of your questions.


Label clothes and PE kits (navy blue shorts, white t shirt, black plimsolls, spare underwear and socks)


Wear PE uniform into school ALL day TUESDAY, every Tuesday.


Bring in spare clothes and underwear incase of any toilet accidents.


Book bags - check them daily


Children will be taught to read through phonics - learn letter sounds


Snacks- ONE small piece of fruit only should be sent in a labelled box for morning playtime

 (if you could take off the skin of an orange this would greatly help your child).

Please cut grapes length wise for safety reasons.



I am available at the end of the day if you would like to speak to me about anything. Please patiently wait until all the children have been collected.

Alternatively you can email the school via:  I will aim to reply within a 72 hour period.
